    Bought my truck in may of 2012 with 68k miles one it. bought it for a work truck so I wasn't looking for a low mile truck since I knew I was going to be putting on some miles. I knew that I was going to do all the bolt ons and maybe a few other things.

    for the most part it was a very clean truck that seem to be taken care of. first mod was to install my CAI that I got from JMB. had it powder coated red to match my valve covers

    I have to say that it looked really nice installed. cant say that I gain any hp from it but did notice better throttle responds and better mpg.

    heres a sound clip of the intake. you can hear it sucking in the air a lot better

    following mod was the viper logo on the radiator that I saw that someone had on their truck. took me a few hrs to do but overall it turned out nice.

    Were the grills painted black when you got it? Was the BBK already installed when you bought it?

    after that i did my exhaust. did a magnaflow cat back with my 2 rear cats removed.

    it made a difference but at times its just not loud enough. thinking about removing the two front cats and adding cut outs at some point

    the grill was already painted black when i got it and it was on air bags. the bbk i installed about 5 months after i got the truck. some of the pictures are out of place cause i forgot to take before and after of them. heres the picture of the air bag system. its made by air lift and its the smartair system that when the bed of the truck drops due to the weight it inflates the bags. comes in useful when im towing my trailer

    it wasnt really that hard to make. i found a clean picture of it online and then with photo shop i blew the image bigger and printed it out. lined up everything and cut it out and taped it in place. once that was done i taped to the radiator and used high temp spray paint that i got at autozone. one of the cheapest mods and i think coolest. PM me your email address i still have the image if anyone wants to make the same logo

    I know the truck looks dirty AF but we get hit by rain for a couple of days straight and no point in washing it til it stops raining out here

    I know this isn't a truck mod but I figured i would share it with you guys. it was made out of diamond plate, placed on a sheet of plywood and raised off the sheet so i could add lights to the back of the diamond plate. looks really cool at night and i can set it to change different colors or have it on just one color

    i had a really bad oil leak that was coming from the oil cooler lines and so i replaced them with a set i made. heres the oil lines that i made. i had to remake the one of the lines due to being to long but wasnt a big deal since it was just removing the ends and cutting the line down to the size i wanted. cost was about $150 to make and best part is i made them instead of buy them. havent had them leak and they been on the truck for about 9 months now

    added my BBK throttle body and SCT tune by Torrie at unleashed tuning. now i wish i would have gone with JTSVP throttle body since it has the nitrous hook up instead i had to hook it up to my CAI as you can see later in the following post. overall i have to say that these two mods i felt the biggest HP gain. it was night and day with both. not sure if it was both that made the huge difference or it was just one of them since i installed both at the same time.
